Who hasn’t tucked in to an icy cold pint of Ben & Jerry’s thinking “just a few spoonfuls,” when in reality you know your spoon will soon be scraping the bottom of the container? If you’re struggling to decide which flavor should be your next indulgence, look no further. We’ve compiled the ten best Ben & Jerry’s flavors so you can spend less time perusing the ice cream selection at your local grocery and more time curled up at home on the couch with your pint.
10. Chunky Monkey
Take a bite, close your eyes, and imagine you’re on a tropical island. Fudge chunks and walnuts highlight the cool, creamy banana ice cream, coming together in a delicious flavor combination. Banana isn’t always a crowd pleaser, though, so this monkey is hanging at the bottom of our list.
9. Phish Food
Swirls of marshmallow and caramel added to chocolate ice cream make this flavor ooey, gooey, and oh so rich. But wait, there’s more–little fudge fish swimming around in all that chocolatey, caramely, marshmallowy goodness. Providing a nice frozen crunch, you’ll be fishing for those little buggers with your spoon like you’re reeling in the prize-winning bass.
8. Cherry Garcia
A name almost synonymous with the Ben & Jerry’s brand itself, Cherry Garcia had to make the list. Just the right mix of cherry and chocolate, you’ll be singing praises for this ice cream named after rock legend Jerry Garcia.
7. Americone Dream
The infamous ice cream question: cup or cone? Fortunately, you don’t have to decide with Americone Dream. Fudge covered waffle cone pieces perfectly complement vanilla ice cream and a caramel swirl, tasting almost as good as freedom itself.
6. Milk and Cookies
Is there anything more comforting than a plate of warm, just baked cookies paired with a cool glass of milk? The answer: yes, this Ben and Jerry’s classic. Vanilla ice cream filled with not one, but two types of cookies and a chocolate cookie swirl.
5. Chocolate Fudge Brownie
Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. You can’t go wrong with this indulgent mix of perfectly creamy chocolate ice cream and big brownie chunks. With chewy brownie and smooth ice cream, you’ll be going in for seconds, thirds…and maybe back to the store for another pint.
4. Everything But The…
Everything but the what?…you might be thinking. Well, ponder no more. Living up to its name, this flavor combines just about everything you can think of into one flavor, satisfying just about every craving. This pint comes filled with chocolate and vanilla ice creams, plus with peanut butter cups, fudge-covered toffee pieces, white chocolatey chunks, and fudge covered almonds.
3. Strawberry Cheesecake
An absolute Ben & Jerry’s classic, this flavor has converted skeptics into true believers. As if strawberry cheesecake ice cream weren’t delectable enough on its own, the ice cream geniuses added strawberries and a graham cracker swirl for an experience that can only be described as “blissful.”
2. The Tonight Dough
Caramel and chocolate ice creams blend together to create a sweet, smooth flavor enhanced by chocolate cookie swirls. As if that wasn’t enough, good ole Ben & Jerry added chocolate chip cookie dough AND peanut butter cookie dough. Finding one of those chewy balls of doughy goodness in the midst of all that ice cream is like finding a little nugget of heaven.
1. Half Baked
Take four classics, mix them together, and create the best ice cream flavor of all time. Chocolate ice cream, vanilla ice cream, chocolate chip cookie dough, and fudge brownie. What could go wrong? Our answer: absolutely nothing.
